WEEKLY DEVOTION – July 25, 2021
“Lord, teach us to pray.”
True praying involves knowing beforehand what to request from God. Praying is asking for something definite. The mind is given over entirely to God, thinking of Him, of what is needed, and of what has been received in the past.
The very first step in prayer is a mental step. We must be taught through our intellect. And only as far as the intellect is given over to God in prayer will we be able to learn how to pray.
Lord Jesus, just like Your disciples long ago I ask of you today,
“teach us to pray.” Amen
